Halloween…

Ghouls, Goblins, and Monsters all sweep the streets on the last night of October. You prep your kiddos to be scary, cute, fun and cool for a chance to stay up late and get candy! Halloween is the one night you get to be someone- or something else, walk alongside people in your community, subject yourself to a haunted house or two and take candy from neighbors.

While there are so many positive sides to trick or treating, there is one major negative side. The CANDY!  In all its glory and yumminess, candy is not an ideal part of a well-balanced diet! It can cause hyperactivity, weight gain, obesity, diabetes, and so much more. So how can you alleviate the burden of such a monumental part of Halloween?

Introduce the Switch Witch! 

The Switch Witch is a fun and exciting way to get rid of all the excess candy. After a fun night of Trick-Or-Treating, have your kids choose the top 10 pieces of candy that they want to keep and then put the rest outside of their door. Why would they do that you ask? Read the image below to find the rules of the game!

What about all that extra candy?!

If you and your family decide to play this game, you might question where your excess candy will be going?

We have connected with one of the Backstage youth directors and asked if they would be willing to take the candy and spread it out amoungst the youth that come and hang out there. They were very happy to accept and thought it would make the youth happy! We will have a candy bin at our gym and are looking forward to your contributions to this game!

Happy Halloween!
